Japanese stab binding #49: giraffe

I’ve started a series of animal stab binds, just to see how many I can create and how recognizable they are. Next up, elephants and a lion!

This giraffe bind has 55 holes and is only complicated in the middle, as the holes look random when unsewn and knowing which is which is a bit tricky. Otherwise it’s pretty straightforward! It would make a cute baby book/picture album.

    • It’s half written! I’m actually thinking about releasing it with several other patterns as an ebook. Still checking into how to do that though.

      • Did you ever release that e-book? I looked for it but couldn’t find it :(
        I just finished one book with the “Tiara” pattern. It is a beautiful pattern, thank you for sharing it.
        I am really interested in making the Giraffe and the elephants, are you still willing to share these patterns?
        Thank you so much,
        Maria

      • Ahhh…no, unfortunately. Life happened, as it usually does. I did pull that project out of the closet recently, but haven’t had a chance to work on it yet. But the more that I know people would like to see it, the more motivated I am to get it done!

  1. This is wonderful. Did you ever figure out how to create that e-book? I am interested in this pattern in particular but everything you make is very creative and unique.

    • No, I moved house and had a baby and lost motivation, ha. The samples and tutorial graphics are only half finished, though the written instructions are finished. Maybe one day…

      • I sent you another message but I don’t think it went through. I looked all over for the e-book, no wonder now why I couldn’t find it 🙂 🙂
        Are you still willing to share the patterns for the Giraffe and elephants? I just finished your Tiara pattern and loved it.
        Thank you so much,

    • Hi Teejay,
      Ehh…I had a baby and got addicted to knitting, so my bookbinding projects are gathering dust. I do have the tutorial notes written, just haven’t finished the graphic. One day…
